Effect Change Challenge

The Effect Change Challenge is a monthly challenge urging readers of my blog to do their part to help our planet by making small changes in our day to day lives. Together we can make a difference!

Effect Change Challenge - September 2011

I recently posted about Minds in the Water and have also watched some of the interviews with Hannah Fraser, Isabel Lucas and Dave Rastovich on YouTube. They have all mentioned on several occasions about a site called Visual Petition and it has given me an idea for this month's challenge!

Let's all add to the list of people who have posted their photos of themselves holding photos of marine mammals!

This is an awesome way to show people and our oceans that we care and are working to make a difference!

So please check out their site @ Visual Petition (they give all the details on how to submit your photos) and let's all try to spread the word!

Effect Change Challenge - August2011


So for this month's Effect Change Challenge, I would like to see you all participate (in any way possible, big or small) in cleaning up our neighbourhood parks (especially beaches and areas with bodies of water). This can be as simple as noticing a newspaper that's been tossed on the ground and recycling it! Or it can be as big as getting a group of your buddies together and taking a trip to your local beach, lake or river and bring buckets and tongs to do a serious clean up!

Any effort you can make to help clean up and spread the word about taking care of/learning to respect our planet would be amazing!

We all have the power to effect change!

Effect Change Challenge - July 2011

So for this month's Effect Change Challenge, I would like to ask you all to think about the number of plastic bags you use in a month and where you think they end up. I would like to challenge you all to really make an effort this month to use your reusable cloth bags and avoid the use of plastic bags!

I would also like to give you a tip! There are companies out there that are making biodegradable plastic bags in a variety of shapes and sizes! Why not try them out? Also remember that you can use sandwich bags more than once! Don't just toss them after one use! Try to rinse them out and use them again!
